The Ministry of Health on Wednesday morning held its first ever Secondary Schools Immunization Week Road Relay. The relay was staged to raise awareness of the benefits of immunization, and took place in the nation’s capital on Wednesday morning.

It is the first time that the Ministry has organized a road relay to promote a health activity, and from all indications it was successful and students are looking forward to next year’s event.

On Monday there was an immunization awareness street march in St David and on Wednesday in St John and St Patrick. However, Wednesday’s road relay covered a distance of over 3 miles.
